My husband was in jail from Dec 26, 2011 - Feb 6, 2012. I found out because earlier in January, he told me his court date was on the 6th, so when I called the clerk told me he was in the midst of being released.
Well, he's given myself and our daughters no call, no visit or anything. He had been cheating on me for the most part of our marriage, so I'm assuming he's run off with his girlfriend and doesn't plan to see us or talk to us at all. Obviously, I want to get a divorce, but I'm told VA law allows divorce only after a year separation. Can I still file child support, even though we are still legally married (though separated)? Can I get divorce due to abandonment?
He was the breadwinner for our family and I take care of the kids 100% of the time. What are my options, monetary-wise?Our daughters are 2 years old and 5 months old.
